Sister Sister star Tamara Mowry-Housley publicly appealed for information on her niece, who was later revealed to be one of the victims of the Southern California mass-shooting this week. "Can you please DM me your information?' According to the friend Ashley, Alaina was the only one out of 'a handful of girls [who] went to line dance tonight", and is now unaccounted for.
According to Los Angeles Times reporter Andrea Castillo, Adam visited the Los Robles Regional Medical Center looking for Alaina.
Somehow in the midst of their mourning, Tamara managed to post a gut wrenching tribute to her attractive niece, saying.
"I mean, you know, I've been on your side the whole time, and to be on this side's not fun", he said, referring to his work as a journalist. I'm a lover of words, photography, books, travel, animals and The Ohio State Buckeyes.
Earlier, Pepperdine University classmate of Housley's took to Twitter, stating her friend had gone missing and offered a brief description of her attire. But she would have insisted that it be respectful with an eye toward solving these senseless shootings.
Alaina's Apple Watch and iPhone still showed her location on the dancefloor.
Then, around noon Thursday, the couple released a statement that the Pepperdine freshman was among the 13 dead.
Promptly after confirming their niece's death, Tamera's co-hosts sent messages of love and support to her and her family.
People comfort each other as they stand near the scene, November 8, 2018, in Thousand Oaks, Calif., where a gunman opened fire Wednesday inside a country dance bar crowded with hundreds of people on "college night".

The rampage killed at least 13 people, including a sheriff's sergeant, and injured multiple others.
